Default Peptide Aldehyde Synthesis and Purification



I am interested in the following peptide N-carbobenzoyl-Ile-Glu-(OtBu)-Ala-Leu-CHO. It isnt too difficult to synthesize, however, the purification is the difficult part. 90% can be done but when trying to go above that (the target is 95%), the purity drops. It is very prone to racemization as well.

We used 0.1% TFA in 100% acetonitrile and 0.1% TFA in 100% water to purify the peptide, and methanol. Is there a better process or some sort of special technology we're missing here? Does anyone have the complete purification procedure from start to finish?

Hey Puri! welcome to the forums!

thats interesting peptide to make...

There are many techniques out there that could probably work well for you:

have you looked into HPLC methods for peptide purification?

Peptide Aldehyde is very hard to make. We met the same problem.

I am making peptide aldehydes using Novabiochem resins (they have with attached Leu - H-Leu-H NovaSyn TG Resin Cat# 04-12-3720). Cleavage is simple using TFA:TIS:H2O (95:2.5:2.5) mixture.
Then I am doing HPLC purification on C18 column (80% Acetonitryle/Water + 0.1% TFA and Water + 0.1 % TFA). From my experience I can say that yields are usually low.

By using this specific resin from Novabiochem yields are higher, than when I was using Weinreb resin and then Reductive cleavage.

Reaching >95% by only optimizing the purification is a difficult and expensive task. Do you know the impurities?

If yes: you should think about optimizing the synthesis, e.g. using capping procedures which modify the retention times of the unwanted side-products. That is the way we usually reach >95% when needed.
